“Pretty Bird” An Altered Rummikub Game Piece Pendant on Copper Necklace
February 4, 2008
I finished up my Pretty Bird necklace yesterday and listed last night on etsy.
I had made 6 sets of the copper wire wrapped spiral beads. I still had copper chain that I bought from Beads By Evelyn, and plenty of recycled paper I bought from Julia Garretson. I decided to recycle, reuse and repurpose by taking the copper spiral necklace that I used for making the chimp necklace and add a different kind of pendant. The “Pretty Bird” pendant above is made with an altered Rummikub® game piece.
The Rummikub® game piece is attached to the necklace via two wire wrapped bails. If you look at the front of the pendant you can see that I embellished the pendant with a flower charm. The charm is attached through one of the bails.
Above is the finished mixed media necklace. The birds are a cockatoo and a lovebird…at least it looks like a lovebird. I definitely love the turquoise blue and copper color combination. It is a “pretty bird” indeed!
